Do You Know How I Feel?

Do you know how I feel?

That is what others ask to me

Yet my jumbled up emotions

They pretend they cannot see


Do you know how I feel?

Others plead while looking in my eyes

Ignoring what they truly see

As tears roll from my eyes


Do you know how I feel?

I should ask this question for me

For while you care about your feelings

In my head I’m asking “what about me?”


“Many people are so selfish. They only care about their feelings while neglecting the feelings of others…..but just because many are selfish, doesn’t mean you have to be as well. Take time to see the other person’s side. For while you may be hurting, they may be hurting as well.” –Monica Renata
